Some big news

As you'll have seen from my recent post, I really enjoyed last week's Royal Parks half-marathon. Within 24 hours, I had fielded over a dozen questions about when I was going to run my first marathon. Despite running three half marathons this year, I've never run a full marathon. But then, I got the email that ...

Race Report: Royal Parks Half-Marathon 2012

The weather was perfect, the crowd was amazing and my training actually paid off. Plus loads of smiles and a friendly welcome from the team at Epilepsy Action. After the Edinburgh half-marathon, I aimed to once again bring down my time. I completed Edinburgh in 1:49, so wanted to bring this down to a slightly faster 1:45. ...

24 hours to go…

In a little over 24 hours, I'll be busy limbering up for the start of this year's Royal Park's Foundation half-marathon. Of the few halfie's I've done, it's definitely my favourite. Despite the crowds and some of the tricky narrow corners, it's a scenic and relatively flat run, passing some of the most beautiful sights in ...

Nexus no more

Um. I have a confession to make. After racing around much of San Francisco and L.A. just a few short months ago, all in an attempt to buy a brand new Google Nexus 7 tablet, I've just sold the one I eventually bought when I got back to London. Why? Numerous reasons, but it was ultimately ...

A generalisation, but…

I spent a few days in Dublin on business earlier this week. Most of that time was spent trying to avoid the biblical-standard rain that pummelled the city right up until the point my taxi pulled into Dublin Airport for my journey home. Great timing. I've been back and forth to Dublin quite a bit ...

Week 1 with the iPhone 5

One week of pretty heavy use of my new iPhone 5 later, I find myself just about ready to give this a considered review. Those with a short attention span can look away now, satisfied that I really, really like the device and am glad I took the plunge and upgraded. Those of you with ...

The end of the world is nigh…

…it must be. Because Apple just apologised for the quality of their new Maps application. Apple's CEO Tim Cook just posted an open letter on their website, apologising for the mess and indicating that improvements are on the way. Who'd a thunk it? At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our ...

Hanging with my TWiTs

We spent today out in Petaluma, visiting the set of the TWIT podcasts. The photo above features me (on the left) geeking out wildly while podcast host Leo Laporte smiles on. It was fun to watch a couple of their shows being filmed - especially as I watch and/or listen to TWIT shows virtually every ...

Race Report: Edinburgh Half-Marathon

Finishing the Edinburgh half-marathon. Despite the crazy course (running from Edinburgh centre out to Musselburgh, one-way?!), the crowded start and multiple pot-holes, it was a great run. I came in at 1:49, which I was really pleased with. With hindsight, I could have taken another minute or two off that, but I was concerned about ...
